Blockbuster trades? The 2012 Summer Olympics? I heard something about both this week- but the biggest news came from the cyber world. Shocking even his teammates, Braves 3B Chipper Jones 'finally got the twitta!'
Chippa's twitta account blew it up after Wednesday's throttling of the deconstructed Marlins. In what has to be one of the better baseball tweets this season, Chippa had this to say: "Mike b and jhey go yicketty! The roadrunner went mammo! And the Bravos have a winning road trip. My kind of day off, no action!!!"
Yicketty? Mammo? Somebody get me a southern lexicon. Or perhaps it's a baseball one? Never mind, Chip translated it for us: "yicketty means homer! mammo means big bomb."
I can just imagine next time Chippa goes yard. #Yicketty!
